Abstract:This essay samples contemporary scientific poetry, and finds it delightful, lavish with gems great and small, if somewhat narrow in the range of topics it tackles. Some thoughts on opacity and opaqueness and on reading poetry are followed by discussion of two recent anthologies, A Quark for Mister Mark and Songs from Unsung Worlds, and by particular consideration of the work of Charles Simic, Diane Ackerman and Roald Hoffmann.
